The disappointing point to note is that the tablet will not provide support for NFC, wireless charging, and even 5G connectivity. Microsoft should try to include 5G support so that people will find value with the device. We don’t know why Microsoft has loaded Android on the Surface device. We feel that it should be to attract Android users globally. It is to be noted that Android users form a significant marketplace with the absence of any competing mobile operating platforms.

We don’t have any information about when Microsoft will launch Surface Duo. However, the reports from the rumor mills state that it could be by the end of 2020. The delay could be due to the eruption of the COVID-19 outbreak globally.
